Coffee is a brewed drink prepared from roasted coffee beans, which are the seeds of berries from the Coffee plant. The Coffee plant is native to subtropical Africa and some islands in southern Asia. The plant was exported from Africa to countries around the world and coffee plants are now cultivated in over 70 countries, primarily in the equatorial regions of the Americas, Southeast Asia, India, and Africa. The two most commonly grown are the highly regarded arabica, and the less sophisticated but stronger and more hardy robusta.Coffee-quotes-wholesale-coffee-company

It is interesting to know that lots of people do not pay attention to the goodness of coffee.  but pay attention only to the caffeine effect. In this post, I intend to take you on a journey of discovery.

Come with me

  1. The caffeine in the coffee is a stimulant and  is absorbed into the bloodstream from where it travels to the brain. It makes you work smarter.
  2. Coffee improves memory, mood, vigilance, energy levels, reaction times and general cognitive function.
  3.  Caffeine is found in almost every commercial fat burning supplement? This is so because caffeine can increase metabolic rates.
  4. Studies show that caffeine can specifically increase the burning of fat, by as much as 10% in obese individuals and 29% in lean people. Although, this may diminish with long term  drinkers.
  5. As fats are been broken down, they are converted to fuels in form of fatty acids thereby creating energy for physical activities. Caffeine increases the stimulation of Epinephrine hence increasing the work rate of the consumer.
  6. It contains several important nutrients, including Riboflavin, Pantothenic Acid, Manganese, Potassium, Magnesium and Niacin. A cup contains the following :
  • Vitamin B2: 11% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin B5: 6% of the RDA.
  • Manganese and Potassium: 3% of the RDA.
  • Magnesiumand Niacin (B3): 2% of the RDA.
  1.  For some reason, it has been shown that coffee drinkers have a significantly reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
  2.  It is often claimed that caffeine can increase blood pressure. This is true, but the effect is small (3-4 mm/Hg) and usually goes away if you drink it regularly.

However, the effect may persist in some people, so keep that in mind if you have elevated blood pressure.

  •  Can incite or worsen anxiety, insomnia, tremor and potentially elevate glaucoma risk.
  • Due to the high acid level of coffee, there may be digestive discomfort, indigestion, heartburn, GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease)
  • Elevated urine excretion minerals such as potassium have been noted in drinkers. This can lead to complications.
  • Ingredients can interfere with normal drug processes and fat breakdown in the liver making it difficult to regulate the normal detoxification process in the liver.

In all, we can’t rule out coffee completely otherwise, we would be throwing away the baby with bath water.
